A new method of developing expert consensus practice guidelines. (2/202)

To improve the quality of medical care while reducing costs, it is necessary to standardize best practice habits at the most crucial clinical decision points. Because many pertinent questions encountered in everyday practice are not well answered by the available research, expert consensus is a valuable bridge between clinical research and clinical practice. Previous methods of developing expert consensus have been limited by their relative lack of quantification, specificity, representativeness, and implementation. This article describes a new method of developing, documenting, and disseminating expert consensus guidelines that meets these concerns. This method has already been applied to four disorders in psychiatry and could be equally useful for other medical conditions. Leading clinical researchers studying a given disorder complete a survey soliciting their opinions on its most important disease management questions that are not covered well by definitive research. The survey response rates among the experts for the four different psychiatric disorders have each exceeded 85%. The views of the clinical researchers are validated by surveying separately a large group of practicing clinicians to ensure that the guideline recommendations are widely generalizable. All of the suggestions made in the guideline are derived from, and referenced to, the experts' survey responses using criteria that were established a priori for defining first-, second-, and third-line choices. Analysis of survey results suggests that this method of quantifying expert responses achieves a high level of reliability and reproducibility. This survey method is probably the best available means for standardizing practice for decisions points not well covered by research.  (+info)

Formal consensus and consultation: a qualitative method for development of a guideline for dementia. (3/202)

OBJECTIVES: To use a formal consensus method--the nominal group technique--for developing a clinical practice guideline to improve the diagnosis, needs assessment, and management of dementia at the primary/secondary care interface. To assess the usefulness of this method in an area where there is a dearth of clinical trials thus precluding an evidence-based approach. DESIGN: A qualitative and iterative method was used. The guideline was developed by an expert panel using the nominal group technique, incorporating the deliberations of a Primary Care Professionals' Task Group, recent reviews in the scientific literature, information from semistructured interviews with local specialists, and a local questionnaire survey. SETTING: Mainly Bristol but incorporating other parts of the United Kingdom especially the south and west. SUBJECTS: Expert panel group (including users and non-statutory organisations), local general practitioners (GPs), professionals carrying out the health check for people over 75, local geriatricians and psychogeriatricians, and primary care professionals with an interest in dementia. MAIN MEASURES: Items important in dementia from the nominal group in response to three questions on diagnosis, needs assessment, and management, ranked into a series of top 10 items for each area and allocated a score according to relative importance to each member; summary outputs from the questionnaire survey, semistructured interviews, and primary care professionals' task group. RESULTS: A clinical practice guideline covering diagnosis, needs assessment, and management of dementia in primary care was produced in the form of an algorithm and a management sheet. CONCLUSIONS: A formal consensus method can be used as an acceptable alternative to the evidence-based approach when developing guidelines in situations in which evidence is scarce, in which the guideline is intended as an aid in linking different stages of care, and in which practical and political considerations--such as the links between agencies--are important.  (+info)

Recommendations for the management of irritable bowel syndrome in family practice. IBS Consensus Conference Participants. (4/202)

To help family physicians manage patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a consensus conference was convened in June 1997 at which 5 internationally recognized experts in IBS presented position papers on selected topics previously circulated to the conference participants. Five working groups comprising family physicians, gastroenterologists and allied health care professionals from across Canada were then charged with developing recommendations for the diagnosis, patient education, psychosocial management, dietary advice and pharmacotherapy, respectively. An evidence-based approach was used where possible; otherwise, recommendations were made by consensus. The participants concluded that family physicians can make a positive diagnosis of IBS using symptom criteria. The pathophysiology is poorly understood, but motility and sensory disturbances appear to play a role. Neither psychological nor specific dietary factors cause IBS, but both can trigger symptoms. Drug therapy is not recommended for the routine treatment of IBS, but short-term trials of drug therapy may be targeted to predominant symptoms in selected patients. A step-wise, patient-centred approach to management is outlined.  (+info)

Gastric precancerous lesions: heading for an international consensus. (5/202)

As pathological criteria lie at the foundation for the classification of many diseases, a crucial requisite for such classifications to be valid is that their morphological basis be standardised. Inadequately standardised diagnostic criteria result in unacceptable interobserver variation, a factor that may influence both individual patient care and the evaluation of clinical protocols. One of the most important goals in gastric diseases today is to establish whether cure of Helicobacter pylori is an effective preventive measure against gastric cancer. To tackle this issue it is necessary to measure reliably intermediate outcomes, specifically gastric atrophy and dysplasia. However, there is little agreement on what gastric atrophy and atrophic gastritis are, and treatment and follow up results obtained at one clinical centre are often radically different from those obtained at another. Similarly, studies that examine the fate of dysplastic lesions in the stomach show a great divergence of outcomes between Europe and North America and Japan, where the concept of dysplasia has different connotations. To reach a consensus on the definitions and diagnostic criteria for atrophy and atrophic gastritis, a group of gastrointestinal pathologists and gastroenterologists met in Houston, Texas, USA, in February 1998. Substantive progress was made, but several problems remained, and a study aimed at resolving the issues that seem to stand in the way of an international agreement is currently underway. To fulfil the need for a broad discussion on the diagnostic differences of gastric dysplasia and cancer between East and West, an international group of pathologists gathered in Padova, Italy, in the spring of 1998. Their main objectives were: (1) to agree on the definitions of the spectrum of gastric preneoplastic lesions; (2) to establish an international glossary for gastric precancerous lesions; and (3) to test the consensus and eventually generate guidelines useful to clinicians for the development of management strategies. A consensus was achieved on the definition of gastric dysplasia as preinvasive neoplasia. Other validation studies are underway. The experiences achieved in the search for an international consensus on the phenotypes of atrophic gastritis and gastric dysplasia may represent a model in dealing with the new scenario of a modern evidence-based pathology.  (+info)

Practical considerations in the use of tacrolimus for allogeneic marrow transplantation. (6/202)

Tacrolimus has been shown to be more effective than cyclosporine for prevention of acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). A number of transplant centers have therefore adopted tacrolimus as standard prophylaxis, but with additional experience, current management of tacrolimus differs from that in the clinical studies. Therefore, a consensus conference was convened to assess the current practices. For prevention of GVHD, conference participants recommended administering tacrolimus at 0.03 mg/kg/day (by lean body weight) i.v. by continuous infusion from day -1 or -2 pretransplant, with day -2 used especially for pediatric patients. Therapeutic drug monitoring was considered essential in the management of patients on tacrolimus. The consensus target range for the whole blood concentration was 10-20 ng/ml. Doses were modified for blood levels outside the target range or for nephrotoxicity, and tacrolimus was discontinued for intolerable tremor, hemolytic uremic syndrome, leukoencephalopathy or other serious toxicity. Tacrolimus was employed most frequently in combination with minimethotrexate (5 mg/m2 i.v. days 1, 3, 6 and 11). Tapering was individualized according to center practice. No patient category was excluded from use of tacrolimus based on age, extent of disease, patient-donor histocompatibility or stem cell source. Tacrolimus was also used successfully for treatment of chronic GVHD. The responsiveness of steroid-refractory acute GVHD was marginal, so it was deemed more prudent to use tacrolimus for prophylaxis instead.  (+info)

The Southampton examination schedule for the diagnosis of musculoskeletal disorders of the upper limb. (7/202)

OBJECTIVES: Following a consensus statement from a multidisciplinary UK workshop, a structured examination schedule was developed for the diagnosis and classification of musculoskeletal disorders of the upper limb. The aim of this study was to test the repeatability and the validity of the newly developed schedule in a hospital setting. METHOD: 43 consecutive referrals to a soft tissue rheumatism clinic (group 1) and 45 subjects with one of a list of specific upper limb disorders (including shoulder capsulitis, rotator cuff tendinitis, lateral epicondylitis and tenosynovitis) (group 2), were recruited from hospital rheumatology and orthopaedic outpatient clinics. All 88 subjects were examined by a research nurse (blinded to diagnosis), and everyone from group 1 was independently examined by a rheumatologist. Between observer agreement was assessed among subjects from group 1 by calculating Cohen's kappa for dichotomous physical signs, and mean differences with limits of agreement for measured ranges of joint movement. To assess the validity of the examination, a pre-defined algorithm was applied to the nurse's examination findings in patients from both groups, and the sensitivity and specificity of the derived diagnoses were determined in comparison with the clinic's independent diagnosis as the reference standard. RESULTS: The between observer repeatability of physical signs varied from good to excellent, with kappa coefficients of 0.66 to 1.00 for most categorical observations, and mean absolute differences of 1.4 degrees -11.9 degrees for measurements of shoulder movement. The sensitivity of the schedule in comparison with the reference standard varied between diagnoses from 58%-100%, while the specificities ranged from 84%-100%. The nurse and the clinic physician generally agreed in their diagnoses, but in the presence of shoulder capsulitis the nurse usually also diagnosed shoulder tendinitis, whereas the clinic physician did not. CONCLUSION: The new examination protocol is repeatable and gives acceptable diagnostic accuracy in a hospital setting. Examination can feasibly be delegated to a trained nurse, and the protocol has the benefit of face and construct validity as well as consensus backing. Its performance in the community, where disease is less clear cut, merits separate evaluation, and further refinement is needed to discriminate between discrete pathologies at the shoulder.  (+info)

Mature B-cell lymphoma/leukemia in children and adolescents: intergroup pathologist consensus with the revised European-American Lymphoma Classification. (8/202)

BACKGROUND: The Revised European-American Lymphoma (R.E.A.L.) Classification criteria were evaluated in the international protocol FAB LMB 96 Treatment of Mature B-cell Lymphoma/Leukemia: A SFOP LMB 96/CCG-5961/UKCCSG NHL 9600 Cooperative Study. This includes B-lineage lymphomas: Burkitt's lymphoma (including ALL-L3); high-grade B-cell lymphoma, Burkitt-like; diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (excluding anaplastic large cell Ki-1 lymphoma). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Cases were independently reviewed by eight hematopathologists from the three cooperative national groups (two SFOP, two CCG, four UKCCSG), without prior discussion of classification criteria or guidelines for case rejection. Consensus diagnosis was determined by each national cooperative group, and final consensus diagnosis established when at least two national consensus diagnoses were in agreement, or following group agreement at a multiheaded microscope. RESULTS: Two hundred eight cases were reviewed, with final consensus diagnosis established in two hundred three. The percent agreement of each group's national consensus diagnosis with final consensus diagnosis was 86%, 86% and 71%. The percent agreement of the group's national consensus diagnosis with final consensus diagnosis for Burkitt's and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma were 88% and 80%, respectively, but only 42% for Burkitt-like lymphoma. CONCLUSIONS: International panel review of mature B-cell lymphoma/leukemia in children and adolescents highlighted difficulties in subclassification, particularly with Burkitt-like, which is a 'provisional entity' in the R.E.A.L. Classification. The absence of previous discussion of classification and guidelines for case rejection may in part explain the discrepancy between pathologists. These results underline that morphology may need to be complemented by other studies, such as molecular genetic and cytogenetics, to discriminate between the mature B-cell lymphomas.  (+info)

Preoperative management of acetabular fracture is a major problem and no consensus has been reached in literature on the optimal treatment of this problem. We present the results of the First Italian Consensus Conference on Acetabular fracture. An extensive review of the literature has been undertaken by the organizing committee and forwarded to the panel. Members were appointed by surgical experience with acetabular fractures. From November 2017 to January 2018, the organizing committee undertook the critical revision and prepared the presentation to the Panel on the day of the Conference. Then 11 recommendations were presented according to the 11 submitted questions. The Panel voted the recommendations after discussion and amendments with the audience. Later on, a second debate took place in September 2018 to reach a unanimous consent. We present results of the following questions: does hip dislocation require reduction? Should hip reduction be performed as soon as possible? In case of unsuccessful

We have read with interest the consensus document on the use of the polypill1 and the editorial by González-Juanatey et al.2 The authors should be congratulated for their initiative in producing a document that helps to increase our knowledge of this therapy and, moreover, defines the situations in which its use can be beneficial. The European Society of Cardiology indicates that reducing the frequency of administration is the most effective way to improve treatment adherence, and it reportedly could reduce cardiovascular events by 75%. However, in our opinion, this document does not deal with an aspect that we consider of vital importance in secondary prevention. Both the consensus document and the editorial underline the need to control hypertension and cholesterol, stressing high-risk patients, but make no mention of patients with coronary stents. We feel that they should include some comment on this subject, especially concerning drug-eluting stents, therapeutic devices used in most ...

Evaluating donors can lead to many ethical decisions. As Dr.Blumberg stated today, there is no real evidence as to what to do with high risk donors. We all agree that recipients should be aware of the increased risk if they are receiving a CDC high risk kidney. But how do we tell them? We can not tell a recipient specifics because we must adhere to hipaa regulations. We are obligated to let the recipient know of their increased risk. They can receive general information that their donor may be at higher risk ...
The etiologic paradigm of complex human disorders such as autism is that genetic and environmental risk factors are independent and additive, but the interactive effects at the epigenetic interface are largely ignored. Genomic technologies have radically changed perspective on the human genome and how the epigenetic interface may impact complex human disorders.. Here, I review recent genomic, environmental and epigenetic findings that suggest a new paradigm of integrative genomics in which genetic variation in genomic size may be impacted by dietary and environmental factors that influence the genomic saturation of DNA methylation.. Human genomes are highly repetitive, but the interface of large-scale genomic differences with environmental factors that alter the DNA methylome such as dietary folate is under-explored. In addition to obvious direct effects of some environmental toxins on the genome by causing chromosomal breaks, non-mutagenic toxin exposures correlate with DNA hypomethylation ...

Purpose Guidelines are limited for genetic testing for prostate cancer (PCA). The goal of this conference was to develop an expert consensus-driven working framework for comprehensive genetic evaluation of inherited PCA in the multigene testing era addressing genetic counseling, testing, and genetically informed management. Methods An expert consensus conference was convened including key stakeholders to address genetic counseling and testing, PCA screening, and management informed by evidence review. Results Consensus was strong that patients should engage in shared decision making for genetic testing. There was strong consensus to test HOXB13 for suspected hereditary PCA, BRCA1/2 for suspected hereditary breast and ovarian cancer, and DNA mismatch repair genes for suspected Lynch syndrome. There was strong consensus to factor BRCA2 mutations into PCA screening discussions. BRCA2 achieved moderate consensus for factoring into early-stage management discussion, with stronger consensus in high-risk

CLINICAL GUIDELINES Multisociety (AATS, ACCF, SCAI, and STS) expert consensus statement: Operator and institutional requirements for transcatheter valve repair and replacement, part 1: Transcatheter aortic
In 2014, the US Department of Veterans Affairs practice guidelines recommended nonfasting lipid testing for cardiovascular risk assessment.1 Other recent clinical guidelines and expert consensus statements from Europe and Canada now also recommend nonfasting lipid testing for most routine clinical evaluations.. Physiologically, we spend most of our lives in the nonfasting state, yet fasting lipid testing was standard practice advocated by earlier clinical guidelines. The rationale for fasting before measuring lipids was to reduce variability and to allow for a more accurate derivation of the low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) concentration using the Friedewald formula. There was also concern that an increase in triglyceride concentrations after consuming a fatty meal would reduce the validity of the results. However, numerous studies have found that the increase in plasma triglycerides after normal food intake is much less than that during a fat-tolerance test, making this less of a ...

The Consensus Conference on Environmental Protection ended yesterday with a laundry list of bold initiatives to accomplish on short notice. Discussion at this year\s conference focused on whether the total number of the country\s motor vehicles, including motorcycles and cars, should be regulated. The final report advised limiting the number of motor vehicles and gradually reducing the total number of cars per person. The so-called \consensus among the participants\ suggested that within two years, the government should create a detailed list of standards for pollutants emitted from the motorcycles and cars. It should also establish a timeline to establish when emissions goals should be

on the William & Mary campus.. Algae are good candidates for use as biofuel because of their rapid growth rates, ability to take-up nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus, and some of these aquatic plants have as much as 50 percent oil content, depending on environmental factors. ChAP differs from other algal biofuel initiatives in two ways.. In the first place, were going to work with many species of algae, as opposed to concentrating on farming a monoculture, or attempting to contain genetically modified algae in open-water environments, Manos said. Most current algae studies focus on one high-yield species or strain of algae, but Manos explained that using a polyculture approach makes the algae less susceptible to disease and generally more robust. One of the goals of ChAP will be to develop processes to maximize the effective energy yield from a harvest that varies in oil content.. The other difference is that the process is designed to work without competing with either fresh-water ...

The Consensus Document on Alternatives to Allogenic Blood Transfusion (AABT) has been drawn up by a panel of experts from 5 scientific societies. The Seville Consensus Document on Alternatives to Allogenic Blood Transfusion
​An international panel of experts were convened to create common technical language for pathologists and obstetricians that describe anatomic aspects of PAS, including the extent and location of abnormal placental invasion in the uterus or damage to surrounding organs.
Depending on RV function venovenous (VV) or venoarterial (VA) extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) may be considered as a bridge to recovery or bridge to transplantation.38 In patients with large atrial communications, circulatory support with VV-ECMO may be feasible even in the failing RV by providing oxygenated blood shunting right-to-left through the defect.38 The indication for mechanical support with ECMO depends on aetiology of RV or lung failure. Its short-term use in post cardiac surgery PH is generally accepted. However, longer support times had been described with new therapeutic strategies (e.g. awake-ECMO) making it feasible as bridge to transplantation in selected patients with other aetiologies. Timing of mechanical support in children is less well established compared with adults. The Interagency Registry for Mechanically Assisted Circulatory Support has defined clinical profiles of patients failing on optimal therapy for heart failure. Levels 1 and 2 are generally accepted ...

AbstractThe burden of peripheral artery disease (PAD) and diabetes in Asia is projected to increase. Asia also has the highest incidence and prevalence of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the world. Therefore, most Asian patients with PAD might have diabetic PAD or ESRD-related PAD. Given these pandemic conditions, critical limb ischemia (CLI) with diabetes or ESRD, the most advanced and challenging subset of PAD, is an emerging public health issue in Asian countries. Given that diabetic and ESRD-related CLI have complex pathophysiology that involve arterial insufficiency, bacterial infection, neuropathy, and foot deformity, a coordinated approach that involves endovascular therapy and wound care is vital. Recently, there is increasing interaction among cardiologists, vascular surgeons, radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, and plastic surgeons beyond specialty and country boundaries in Asia. This article is intended to share practical Asian multidisciplinary consensus statement on the ...

For metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patients, treatment usually consists in a first line chemotherapy with docetaxel followed by a second line treatment with either second generation hormonal therapies (abiraterone acetate or enzalutamide) or the new taxane derivative cabazitaxel. Cabazitaxel (Jevtana) is a semi-synthetic taxane with a mechanism of action different to that of docetaxel and paclitaxel. It is an antineoplastic agent that stabilises the microtubules network via its binding to tubulins and the inhibition of microtubules disassembly. Cabazitaxel has demonstrated a broad spectrum of antitumour activity against advanced human tumours xenografted in mice. It is active in docetaxel-sensitive tumours and in tumour models resistant to chemotherapy, including docetaxel. The efficacy of cabazitaxel has been demonstrated in the pivotal clinical trial TROPIC, a randomized, open-label, phase III study that compared cabazitaxel (n = 378) to mitoxantrone (n = 377), both ...

Despite numerous guidelines on the management of anaemia in surgical patients, there is no pragmatic guidance for the diagnosis and management of anaemia and iron deficiency in the postoperative period. A number of experienced researchers and clinicians took part in a two-day expert workshop and developed the following consensus statement. After presentation of our own research data and local policies and procedures, appropriate relevant literature was reviewed and discussed. We developed a series of best-practice and evidence-based statements to advise on patient care with respect to anaemia and iron deficiency in the postoperative period. These statements include: a diagnostic approach to iron deficiency and anaemia in surgical patients; identification of patients appropriate for treatment; and advice on practical management and follow-up that is easy to implement. Available data allow the fulfilment of the requirements of Pillar 1 of Patient Blood Management. We urge national and ...
This paper is the first of a series of four, it describes the general outline of a research project on the ecology of Gammarus pulex pulex (Linnaeus, 1758), G. fossarum Koch in Panzer, 1836, and Echinogammarus berilloni (Catta, 1878) in a small French chalk stream, the Slack. The entire study investigates the impact of (changes in) environmental factors on standing crop and migration of these three freshwater gammarids. An account is given of biological and physicochemical research methods used. Special methods to capture both drifting and upstream migrating gammarids were developed. In this first part, data on environmental factors are presented with an emphasis on the seasonal and microgeographic variation they show in this river. Detailed information about the diel variation of some environmental factors is given. After mathematical treatment of the data on environmental factors the Slack is classified in four zones: an unstable headwater, a large stable upper/middle region, a rather polluted ...

CrCl = [(140-Age) x Weight (kg)] / [SCr (mg/dL) x 72] x 0.85 if female. Predictive equations recommend giving the numerical result only if GFR is less than 60 mL/min, but not for higher levels.. 6. Equations are not adequate under the following circumstances.. ¿ Extreme body weight: body mass index (BMI) under 19 kg/m2 or over 35 kg/m2.. ¿ Significant muscle mass changes (amputations, muscle mass loss, muscle diseases or paralysis).. ¿ Acute renal failure.. ¿ Pregnancy.. ¿ Severe liver disease, generalised oedema, or ascites.. In these cases, it is recommended to use other methods to estimate GFR, such as conventional creatinine clearance (24-hour urine) or isotopic methods.. 7. Urinary protein excretion should preferably be assessed as the albumin/creatinine ratio in a random urine sample (normal , 30 mg/g), preferably in first morning urine. This ratio represents a good estimate of proteinuria and avoids use of 24-hour urine collection (Strength of recommendation: A).. 8. CKD represents ...
2. The superficial position of the distal radial artery, free of other anatomical structures, makes it easy to find and puncture, and safe to compress after sheath removal. A default radial approach is feasible in routine practice after appropriate training (both in stable and unstable patients including ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction [STEMI] patients), but proficiency in the femoral approach is required because it may be needed as a bailout strategy or when large guiding catheters are required. Better results with radial access are expected with increasing procedural volume of operators ...

Objectives: The aim of the present publication was to report on the EAO Workshop group-4 discussions and consensus statements on the five reviews previously prepared. These reviews provided the scientific evidence on the effect of crown-to-implant ratio, on reconstructions with cantilevers in fully and partially edentulous patients, on biological and technical complications of tilted in comparison with straight implants, and on the effects of osseointegrated implants functioning in a residual dentition. Material and Methods: The group discussed, evaluated, corrected where deemed appropriate, and made recommendations to the authors regarding the following five reviews submitted: (a) Is there an effect of crown-to-implant ratio on implant treatment outcomes?; (b) Implant-supported cantilevered fixed dental rehabilitations in fully edentulous patients; (c) and in partially edentulous patients; (d) Biological and technical complications of tilted implants in comparison with straight implants ...
A consensus statement is a comprehensive analysis by a panel of experts (i.e., consensus panel) of a scientific or medical issue related to diabetes. A consensus statement is developed immediately after a consensus conference at which presentations are made on the issue under review. The statement represents the panels collective analysis, evaluation, and opinion based, in part, on the conference proceedings. The need for a consensus statement arises when clinicians or scientists desire guidance on a subject for which there is a relative deficiency of comprehensive evidence that might otherwise allow for a more definitive statement to be made.. Consensus statements are published in American Diabetes Association journals and other scientific/medical journals, as appropriate. Once written by the panel, a consensus statement is not subject to subsequent review or approval and does not represent official association opinion. Listed below are recent consensus statements.. Postprandial Blood Glucose ...
Though recently bolstered by the results of the PIONEER AF-PCI trial, the evidence base on how to manage antithrombotic therapy in patients with A-fib undergoing PCI remains limited and clinical uncertainty abounds. Now, an updated North American consensus document aims to provide some guidance to clinicians wondering what to do with this hard-to-treat population.. Since the last iteration of the document was published in 2011, new evidence regarding the management of antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapies in patients requiring both has emerged in the form of the WOEST and ISAR-TRIPLE trials. PIONEER AF-PCI provides even more information but was released too recently-just 2 weeks ago at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions-to be incorporated into the new consensus document, which was published online November 1, 2016, ahead of print in Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions and discussed during a presentation at TCT 2016.. Clinicians have little to go on when deciding how to ...
Human body structures, for example, of a fetus, are automatically measured using ultrasound by first using an ultrasonic transducer or prestored ultrasound scan to generate an image frame as a pattern of pixels. Each pixel has a brightness value corresponding to an echo signal from a corresponding portion of an interrogation region of the patients body, which includes the body structure. The image frame is displayed on a screen and includes a structure frame portion that corresponds to the body structure. The user then designates a general geometry feature of the displayed body structure and at least one measurement parameter associated with the designated geometry feature. For curved, closed structures such as the head or abdomen, the measurement parameters may, for example, be the circumference or at least one diameter. For mainly straight structures such as the femur or humerus, the measurement parameter will normally be the end-to-end length. Next, the user selects at most two reference points
Posts in the Nutritional Supplements Category at The Health Food Outlaw. Three Important Facts About Nutritional Supplements. In fact, many individuals just waste their money purchasing nutritional supplements. Of course, this is clearly because when they swallow them, they are obviously not fully absorbed.
